Default I wonder ahh?

Would it be possible to build a wireless router out of an old pentium PC if u jus stick a wireless network card in it, configure it to let you on the net. Then share the internet connection over the wireless network? What op system could this be done in, win 98?? Coz there is no way the machine is going to work with win 2000 or XP.

I'm not sure it is possible; it would of course be possible to share the internet connection but what a Router does is very much different; what you're saying is to turn it into a Server that organises the internet and I don't think Windows 98 could do that without all the other PCs being on Windows 98.
